Searching Lakewood Apartments? Then you're looking in a business community with a love for nature, a city filled with tree-lined streets, walkable neighborhoods and a charming downtown area. Discover what makes the city of Lakewood so appealing.
Get out of your apartment and welcome summer each year with the Lakewood Civic Center Block Party in June. The party includes live music, kids' activities and the annual Taste of Lakewood event. Also in June, Lakewood's popular summer concert series kicks off. For eight consecutive Thursday evenings, the weekly concerts will have you dancing under the stars to classic rock, country western and pop music at Del Valle Park.
Speaking of dancing, exercise in the great outdoors at any of Lakewood's 150 acres of parks and recreation centers. Stroll through the wildflower meadow in Rynerson Park, a 40-acre park adjacent to the San Gabriel River. Get your feet wet at Mayfair Park, an 18-acre recreation facility with a wading pool, swimming pool, tennis courts, game courts, athletic fields, picnic facilities and a playground. Run wild at Del Valle Park, a 12-acre facility that earned its nickname of Airplane Park for the Douglas F3D fighter jet displayed on the southwest corner of the park. With 12 parks and recreation centers in the city, you're bound to find Lakewood apartments near one that suits your active or leisurely lifestyle.
After all that walking and exercising, treat yourself at one of Lakewood's local eateries, such as Me-N-Ed's Pizza Parlor, a hometown joint serving up crispy thin crust pizzas. The Loft Hawaiian Restaurant is a southern California chain, but its sweet island-style fried chicken and bacon fried rice are each a must-try. If you prefer making meals in your own apartment, visit one of the Lakewood area farmers markets, including three in nearby Long Beach, one in Huntington Park and one in Cerritos. For Southerners relocating to Lakewood apartments, get your fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and collards fix at M&M Soul Food, a hidden jewel of a restaurant.
